Innocent man who spent 12yrs in prison, gets called to the Nigerian Bar

A Nigerian man identified as Akpoghene Edeno has shown many people that with faith and determination, along with hard work, nothing is impossible to achieve.

He was recently called to the bar, but the story of his life left many people amazed. According to Facebook user Charles Mallam-Obi, Edeno was imprisoned for 12 years for a murder he did not commit.

This, however, did not prevent him from pursuing his dreams, since he not only wrote WAEC in prison, but also studied law after being released.

The post reads:

“Akpoghene Edeno is my childhood friend who spent twelve years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. He wrote WAEC while still in prison. He came out in 2012 and immediately proceeded to the University of Benin to study law. Today, he has been called to the Nigeria bar.

His story is a testament to how indomitable the determined human spirit is. He could have been bitter at the society for the injustice he suffered for an offense he didn’t commit. He could have been depressed. But he chose to show up and face the challenges of life.

Congratulations, my brother. The sky isn’t even your starting floor!”
